Miranda L Soucie

About me

If one thing can be said about Miranda's interactions with her clients, it is that she truly cares. Having been through the process of a personal injury suit herself, she is uniquely in touch with what it is like to be in the client's shoes.


 


In 2015, she was named by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin as an Emerging Lawyer in the State of Illinois, as well as being recognized as a 2015 Rising Star by Super Lawyer. Both accolades are an honor extended only to those lawyers who are the most recommended by their peers. Again in 2015, she was named as 40 under 40 by the Central Illinois Business Magazine, which recognizes the achievements, leadership, innovation, experience and community involvement of young professionals in Central Illinois.


 


During law school, Miranda received accolades for her performance in the area of Advanced Legal Research and as a member of the Law School’s traveling trial team. She is a recipient of the Pro Bono Notation for volunteering numerous hours of legal services to those in need.


 


 


In her spare time, Miranda enjoys camping, snowboarding, traveling and a variety of athletic activities.

  • Evan Stanley Bruno

    Miranda is one of the most gifted young attorneys in the area. She has won over local trial and appellate court judges with sound legal arguments and enlightened analyses of difficult factual situations. She works hard and thoroughly prepares for every case. When the stakes are high, I would absolutely trust Miranda to handle any serious case.
